220,000 people across Northern Ireland care, unpaid, for a disabled, older or ill family member or friend. Whilst caring can be rewarding, without the right support, it can also take a serious toll on a carer’s health, relationships and finances.
It is vitally important that we recognise all the work that volunteers do – they are often the “life-blood” in our organisations. In the same way as donors give of their money, volunteers give of their time and we want to thank them for all that they do.
The Right to Rent law was introduced in England on 1 February 2016. It makes it a statutory requirement that all private landlords must check new tenants have the right to be in the UK before renting out their property.
The Department for Communities (DfC) will be facilitating a series of stakeholder engagement events to seek views on the development of a programme providing support for women wishing to be involved in community transformation.
The development of our staff and volunteers is key to the success of our organisations and providing effective services. Those that participate on our programmes tell us that the skills and confidence gained make a real difference.
